I know a lot people are saying "GROSS" but if you like them but hate to cook them, this is the place. I almost always get this dish. Every now and then I will try something else and it's always good.

Great place to get a meal you may be used to eating home! Mom had meatloaf with green beans and mac-n-cheese. She loved it! They offer a wide variety of choices of entrees and sides. My salad was perfect and the vegetable soup was delicious!...More

Meat and three done well. Clean, fresh, ample portions, fair price. The place to go in Anderson if this is your bill of fare.

Had the meat and three on one visit. Had breakfast on 2nd visit. Breakfast was really good. Vegies for dinner were canned but well seasoned. Recommend for cheap dining.

Great service and staff and the food is usually always good !! Don't drink the water, it still tastes off. They keep raising prices but the food quality seems to be the same. We will still keep going for now !

The food here is truly southern! So if you are looking for fried chicken and all the sides that go with it this is the place to go. The service is always friendly.

We had breakfast this morning! Great food and great service. The only negative was the inside temperature. It was a ice chest. Just be sure and have a jacket in the car.

No private room. However there is a room size area toward the back of the dining area that could house about 30 people.
